Coach to meet with Miami

Packers wide receivers coach Ray Sherman will soon interview for the same position with the Miami Dolphins, according to recent reports. Sherman has been with the Packers since 2000.<p>

The Packers have given Dolphins new coach Nick Saban permission to speak with Sherman. An interview has been set for sometime this week. Sherman's contract with the Packers expired at the end of this season. Sherman's wife, Yvette and their two daughters moved from Green Bay to Bradenton, Fla., prior to the 2003 season.

Sherman has coached in the NFL for 17 seasons with seven different teams, beginning with the Houston Oilers in 1988. He has been a receivers coach or offensive coordinator for 12 seasons, and a running backs coach for five seasons.

Packers head coach Mike Sherman already has one vacancy on his staff. Defensive line coach Jethro Franklin left last week to take the same position at the University of Southern California.

Sherman said on Monday that he is in the process of evaluating his coaching staff, and will soon decide on which coaches he would like to retain for the 2005 season. Many football experts believe that Sherman will release defensive coordinator Bob Slowik.
